The Trust, in conjunction with the Education Centre, provides many opportunities to receive training and education. It is the trainee’s responsibility to attend appropriate sessions and reflect on these events. If there are difficulties attending these events, it should be raised first with their Educational Supervisor /Clinical Supervisor and then with their college tutor/TSTL. If any further problems arise, then these can be raised with the Education Department.

Events will be advertised via email, twitter and the Education website. For a current list of all events please check the Teaching Events Schedule.
